New attraction unveiled at Khor Fakkan beach in UAE
Sharjah - Beachgoers and families will now enjoy a series of scheduled entertainment and cultural events until April next year.
A new attraction has been unveiled in Khor Fakkan as part of the yearlong celebrations of Sharjah's UNESCO World Book Capital 2019 title.
A series of cultural and literary events marked the launch of the fourth phase of the Sharjah Beach Library initiative in Khor Fakkan.
Organised by the Sharjah World Book Capital Office (SWBC Office) in cooperation with Knowledge without Borders (KwB), the launch of the fourth phase sought to lure beachgoers of the pristine beaches of Khor Fakkan into the fascinating world of the written word.
The launch event included book readings and other cultural activities, shows performed in cooperation with Sharjah International Marine Sports Club, and boat displays loaded with books and decorated with the UAE flag and Sharjah World Book Capital 2019 logo. Khor Fakkan beachgoers and families will now enjoy a series of scheduled entertainment and cultural events until April next year.
The Sharjah Beach Library initiative seeks to nurture a culture of reading and raise community awareness about its importance.
Following the inauguration of the first phase at Al Khan beach in August this year, the second and third phases were launched at Al Khan 2 and Sharjah Ladies Club (SLC), respectively.
UNESCO named Sharjah as the World Book Capital 2019 in appreciation of its vital role in supporting books and promoting reading.
